I have been taking the combined pill for over a year now, I have recently had unprotected sex after my 7 week break. I took my pill on the 8th day and had sex that night. Was i still protected?

Hi, Provided you've been taking the combined pill as directed - i.e. for 21 days with a seven day pill-free break then you are fully protected, even when you have sex on day 1 of your new packet of pills.
